Young forward signs for 2019/20 season
MILTON KEYNES, 25 MAY 2019: A brand new face for MK Hockey fans, Brodie Jesson has become the latest talented addition to Head Coach Lewis Clifford’s growing NIHL squad. He will wear shirt number 78.
18 year old forward Brodie comes to us having spent his entire club career in Telford where he iced for the Tigers scoring 18 goals and 36 points over the last two seasons, alongside a spectacular 35 goals and 77 points in just 17 games (an average of 4.5 points per game) for the under 18s in the same period.
Brodie feels the time is right to make a change to help him reach his full potential and having spoken to people that know him, Lewis Clifford was pleased with the feedback he got and was happy to give him the opportunity.
Clifford said “He is a young man who is keen to learn, which will stand us in good stead as he has all the skills he needs and plays with a bit of an edge. That high skill and compete level coupled with his willingness to learn will make him a real asset to our team.”
Talking about his move, Brodie said “I’m really excited to be with the Lightning for the 2019/20 season, especially after hearing such good things about MK and what kind of team Cliff is building. It’s a great opportunity and a fresh start for me outside of my home town and I can’t wait for what the season brings”
Brodie’s hockey pedigree is strong, as Lewis Clifford explains “He has been well coached in Telford by Tom Watkins so he comes here with a good hockey education behind him. He will now be coached in a different way in a different club which will add to his overall experience and aid in his development.”
“I look forward to working with him and seeing him pull on the Lightning shirt when the new season rolls around.”
Please give a warm welcome to our brand new signing Brodie Jesson
